TITCAO. Feb. 17. Bearish news from Ar
gentina and India oauaed a fresh decline
today In the local wheat market. For the
May delivery . final Quotations showed a
net loaa of c. Com and oata were ach
down V. Provlalons were a shade lower
to 27Hc higher. .
For the third successive day the wheat
market waa dominated by the bears and.
aa on the preceding days prices yielded
materially. . At the opening the May no
tion waa off H to He at 83c to Mo. For
a time the market held steady at the
Initial decline, there being a fair demand
by commission houses. Pit traders were
the principal sellers during the ttrat half
of the session. News of the day was al
most exclusively favorable to the bears.
Inward the end of the first hout the mar
ket became pomewhat firmer because of
covering by shorts. At thla time May
inucned KMynifll'V. LJtter in the day an
other sharp reaction occurred and the price
of May dropped to 8.'Sc The market
closed weak with prices nearly at tt
loweat point of th day. final quotations
on May being at 8:,f. I'learaucea of wheat
and flour were equal to S&s.OW bu. Primary
receipts were 4ti."0 bu.. agHlnal Z40.000
bo a year ago. Minneapolis, Luluth and
Chirsgo reported receipts of 374 cars.
against Ml cars last week and ;'W cars
one year aao.
Despite the weakness of wheat, consider
able steadiness was shown uy the corn
market. There waa a alight decline at
the opening becauap of lower prlcea at
llvprnooL but all of the loss was uulckly
irgaloed on covering by shorts. During
the arealer nai-t of the duv the xeellna
was firm, but the late break in wheat
caused a slightly paslpr tone at the dune
1-arge primary- reoeipts and the prospect
of a continued Ittieral movement were
bearish factor. May opened 'c to 'iiJiC
lower at' 43tM2kc. aold up to -M-'l'c and
closed at 4iVc. Ixjcat receipts were ftll
,'aru with i of eon I ract arade.
Jats were firm early In the day. but
later the market became easier. Hhorta
Inught. actively during the ttrat Italf of
Die session, the demand Iwlng induced by
Iteavv clearancea at the seaboard. May
oppoed lc lower at 2AiC sold Up to WW

were IK cars.
The provisions market was stronr be
cuusP of s 10c advance in the price of

nipnta of meat and lard. The covering by
ahorta in pork waa a feature of the day.

The disposition of the tiay'
SHEEP The market on shep ami lambs
was In as good condition at t lis point as
any one coul1 ssk for during the brat half
of the week, tin Monday and Tuesday the
tnrdency of prlrps was. if anything, a Huh
higher. On Wednesday It was noticsbh
that while the good kinds sold very readily
st good steady prlcea, there was a disin
clination on the part of buyers to tak
th common and medium soits. Unfortn
nsfely the liberal receipt of Thursday
nil Friday consisted verv largly of theso
itnaesirable sheep and lamb thai is stuff
thet wss only half fat. As buyers wre
sltrndy well filled up by their llbersl pur
chase earlier In the wepk they healtatrd
about taking on unfinished stock and the
market on that kind declined yery consul-,
srably both days from lack of buying aup
port. At the close of the week good 10
choice sheep and lambs are not so very
muoli different from what they were a
week ago, but the common to medium
grades are l.V925c lower, some would say
fully 26c lower.
As hinted above, the brejk this wpk
was duo entirely lo the flooding of th
market with unfinished stock, contrary to
the advlep of every one. Phtppers hare
been -warned almost every day of late In
these columns, ss well as by letters from
their commission men not to ship In any
thing until It was well finished for mar
ket. Still In their anxiety to empty their
feed lota they are shipping in a lot 0
stuff which has to be sold at a sacrifice
and which not onlv breaks the market on
its own kind, but slso weakens the market
on the good grades as well. The trouble
se mi to be due lo the fact tnat there aru
a Isrge number of new feeders who imagine
their alieep are finished and who ship
them to market long before th are ready.
It la a very difficult matter for a man to
Judge of his own sheep while they are at
horn where there is notning witn wnicn 1
they can be compared. Aa an Instance of
this, a feeder who was here last Monday
and saw the n that brought $5.40, the
finest bunch that lias been h-rc this year. 1
said ' that his stuff at home wss
Just as good, but when they arrived j
here yeeierdny, they were not fat enough
for the packers and so had to go to a ,
fppder buyer at $4.. 1
In spite of the declln noted above, this ;
market is still well in line with all others, j
In fsct, South Omaha has been the high 1
market for some time back owing to tho j
efforts put forth here to prevent shippers ;
from flooding the market.

CATTLE It was the usual Katunlav holi
day In tne cattle uivlsion, nutmng of conse-iut-nce
being received or sum. '1 ne receipts
tms k nave been very lnx-ial. being Con
sioeruiuy 111 rxess of last weeks natures
j and more tnnn doubit- tne run tor the cor
1 respfiniiing week ol a year ago. The close
I 01 tin- market wouia seem to Indicate.
I however, tnat the receipts have been none
! too large to satisfy tne demands of tne
11 wouiu ue naiu to imagine a more sal
istactory market tor beef cattle man pre
vailed nuring tne first four oays this week.
In spite of Isrge receipts tne trade was
active and prices strong to higner every
day. The Uemand was sufficient to take
everything offered at most satisfactory
prices, tne market as a wnole being the
Highest 01 any time so far this year. On
Friday the receipts were unaualiy heavy,
and as packers hud their orders prettv
well tilled by that time, the market eased
off somewhat that day, being quoted weak
to luc lower. After allowing tor this re
action the market at the chase of the week
Is still fully I5j26r higher than at the close
of last week.
Cows and heifers had about the same ex
perience aa fat steers, except that thev
showed still more advance during the first
four days of the week and did not make a
much loss on Friday, so thut at the close
of the week they are about 25c higher
than on last Saturday. As high aa (4.60
waa paid for cows during the week. but.
as a matter of uoorvi, they were very
good. The very excellent demand that has
prevailed all the week for cows and heif
ers la a noteworthy feature of the cattle
Mockers and feeders were not In very
large supply on any day of the week.' but
there were a few coming all the tima,
while the country demand wa temoorarllr
cut off by the severe storm of Tuesdav. la
consequence of this some little accumulation
of feeders took place toward the latter part
of the week, and the feeling waa generally
-irr a a result or mi.
Feeder have not shown the advance that
fat rattle have, largely for thp reason that
they were already high; still thev gained
somewhat during the first four davs of the
week, but allowing for a little weakness
at the cloae. the market could not at the
present time be quoted materially higher
than it was at the Pnd of laat week.

IKMJ8 For a Saturday there was a very
decent run of hugs. 119 fresh car being
reported in. The total for the week shows
a slight falling off. as compared with last
week, but a heavy gain over a year ago.
In tact, the receipts thla weuk are more
than double what they were fur the corre
sponding week of last year.
Conditions were generally In sellt ra' favor
this moruing and every one started out
asking considerably more mt-ney for hia
holdings. While buyeis were a littl slow
at hist about putting if the market waa
reasonably active when the trade was once
under way. with values generally a big it:
higher than yeetPrday. Thp hog sold
largely at 83.tr.4. aa agalnat 85.8244
6.674 yeaterday. The lop. $60u. wa mc
hlgher than the beat price yesterday.
This has been a great week to the selleia
of hogs, aa everything had been coming
their way. At the owning the hogs sob!
In Identically the same notches as at th
cloae of the previous week. Turing the
next three day value advanced rapidly
and after a alight reaction of Friday wero
till decidedly higher than at the beginning
of the week. With th ad vane today the
maiket ia an even Sue higner than it waa
at the do of laat week. While the aver
age price at which hoga were selling today
